    Is this Raleigh worth getting?

    I encountered this bike today on the way home from work. I got talking to the owner and he would let it go for $100. It has 7 speed Sti shifters and looks like a leather saddle. I am more interested in the shifters than the bike itself. Is this bike worth snatching up? Is it a decent bike or plain jane?

    Pics aren't working, but functional 7 speed STI shifters are typically worth the asking price of that bike, or close to it.

    The image isn't working because it is a e-mail attachment you need to have the image hosted someplace like photobucket to post it. As for the bike if it is complete and working it is worth the price there is a very good chance you you can pull the 7speed STI shifters replace them with basic cheaper shifters and resale the bike for the $100.
